Urban Culture Talk: Graffiti equals Gentrification?!

Urban Culture Talk: Graffiti equals Gentrification?!

[DE] Politiker, Immobilieninvestoren und Banker werden für die Gentrifizierung unserer Stadt verantwortlich gemacht. Ist es aber wirklich so einfach?
Was ist wenn wir längst schon so weit sind, dass die Rebellion dagegen wie Graffiti und Street Art auch ihren Teil dazu beiträgt?
Die Frage ist welche Rolle spielen die Kulturschaffenden und Subkulturen mittlerweile?
Mit PLATOON Culture Talk wird das Thema Gentrifizierung anders beleuchtet.

PLATOON Culture Talks ist eine monatliche Gesprächsrunde.
Dabei werden Kulturschaffende, Szeneleute und Wissenschaftler eingeladen um über kontroverse Themen, Trends und Strömungen zu diskutieren.

[ENG] Politicians, real estate investors and bankers are held responsible for the gentrification of our city. But is it really that simple?
What if we are already so far, that the rebellion against it like graffiti and street art are contributing to it as well?
The question is what is the role of the artists and subcultures in it?
With PLATOON Culture Talk we are going to approach the theme of gentrification differently.

PLATOON Culture Talks is a monthly series of live talks.
Here artists, scientists and scene players are invited to discuss about controversial issues, trends and current challenges.

About Platoon – Berlin

” is it safe to cross the street? are you moving out of your choice or are you being kicked out? where are the containers? those were just few of the questions asked by people passing by our old area in Alte Schönhauserstr. 3 these days.

containers were flying well, no turbulences, no accidents, everything went well. PLATOON Cultural Development started in early 2000 and this was our second move with containers. we stayed in Weinmeisterstr. 3 for about five years, then in 2007 we moved to Alte Schönhauser 3 for five more incredible years and now we just moved to our new headquarters at Schönhauser Allee 9. not a far move, but a big one.

now our mission is PLATOON KUNSTHALLE Berlin. the first groundwork has been laid, there is still a lot of work to do, but we are already excited”.
